During the long, summer holidays, it can be difficult to keep everyone happy, especially if the weather turns wet or unseasonably cold. When the children or grandchildren are cooped up inside with little space, it’s not long before squabbling breaks out.
During the hot, summer months, your home can become unbearably warm and stuffy. To keep it cool and airy, the usual advice is to close your blinds on the sunny side of the house during the hottest part of the day; when the sun’s moved round, you should repeat the process on the opposite side. That’s all very well but it’s not very practical if you’re out at work or away for the day. Now with Thomas Sanderson’s PowerView™, there’s a much easier way to achieve the same effect. Here’s how.

With the summer months to look forward to, chances are you’ll be spending more time in your conservatory.

Thomas Sanderson can solve this problem quickly and easily.
